Happy Birthday Tatum!

Tatum turned two years old today. She had a party with Nana, Pa, Gretchie, PaPa John, Kristen, Nathan, Mom, Dad, and brothers Chandler and Cooper. We ate Cinderella cake and ice cream. Lots of fun and Tatum was so excited and loved opening her presents.

Coco a little doggy- the most favorite present and so excited with the cuttest facial expression when she saw what the present was but of course didn't get the picture moment.

She likes to "primp" so received a hair dryer and curling iron to use on her vanity table a present from Nana and Pa. Also liked her pink jewelry box from Grandma and PaPa John.

Nathan reading Tatum's favorite story.

A big hug for "pa"!

Happy Birthday Princess!

Valentine's Day

Yesterday the boys came home from school and immediately dumped their bags on the dining room table to look at their valentine cards. It was a fun.

I woke up this morning to a lovely orchid. My gift from Alvin. It is always intriguing to receive orchids and in the past I have done pretty well with them.

We had our taxes done last night and will be receiving a substantial refund so Gretchen and I went out shopping today for a new couch. Isn't it true that we are suppose to be spending money right now? I have wanted a new couch for a few years and have patiently waited. Anyway, when Alvin got home from work we took him out to see the one we liked and looked at fabric swatches. Wrong idea - his likes and mine are totally not the same. So, I have swatches here at home on the back of my existing couch and will decide by Monday which one I want. His or MINE! But, it is Valentine's Day right?

We love you big guy!
